Château Haut Brion 1993 in 12er Holzkiste
Parker: One of the star's of the vintage, the 1993 Haut-Brion is richer as well as more concentrated, powerful, and tannic than the outstanding 1992. It may even turn out to be better than Haut-Brion's 1990! The 1993 displays an attractive, saturated dark ruby color, and a reticent but emerging bouquet of red and black fruits, minerals, vanillin, and spice. With Haut-Brion's characteristically intense, earthy, tobacco flavors well-displayed in this wine's medium-bodied format, this is once again one of Bordeaux's greatest examples of outstanding concentration and flavor intensity combined with finesse and elegance. There is moderate tannin, but like most Haut-Brions it will be delicious at a young age. It will undoubtedly put on weight and richness as it ages over the next 25 years. Very impressive!
